Our Spring Concert is Wednesday, June 5th at 7:00 pm in the school gymnasium. Fast pass tickets go on sale Wednesday, May 29th in the office at a cost of $5.00 each. Tickets will be available at the door. This year we are going with an 80’s theme so students are encouraged to raid your closets for 80’s apparel. Please do not buy anything new for this show. Their regular clothes are fine. Maybe just roll up the short sleeves or the pant legs, add a side pony tail and a scrunchie or pop the shirt collars and ta-da, 80’s!
